When it comes to computers and gadgets, I always trust my husband Don’s opinion. He can be extremely picky at what he likes and what he doesn’t like–usually for very good reasons. Because he owns a computer business, he has to use a lot of different computer products, so he writes a lot of reviews on his blog. I thought his latest entry was of particular interest because it illustrates the old adage: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. He talks about how he loves using the old clickety-clack keyboards that used to come with the old IBM PC computers. But keyboards are made so differently now, they just don’t seem to work as well. He has really big fingers and types so fast that on some laptop keyboards, the keys literally go flying off! And I can certainly relate (though not because he’s my husband). I, too, love the old clickety-clack keyboards and wish they’d bring them back. I mean, why change something that works? Change for the sake of change isn’t necessarily a good thing. And unfortunately, they just don’t make things like they used to. No sirree!
Take a look at his entry and see if you think the new keyboards are the anti-DIFF.
